The Wager starring Randy Travis (Genius Products, May 13, 2008) debuted in the #1 spot in CBA Retail sales.
“The Wager landing in the number one retail spot is a pleasant surprise and shows us that despite a tough economy, consumers and families are still interested in quality entertainment that has a solid, moral message,” says Russell Wolfe, managing partner of Outreach Cinema who produced The Wager.
Based on the best-selling book by Bill Myers, The Wager is a powerful parable examining how to live while your life is tested. Travis plays an actor who is nominated for a prestigious award and just as he has overcome industry blacklisting and persecution for his beliefs, he finds himself in the fight of his life. The Wager unfolds as Travis’ reputation, marriage and career are destroyed and he seeks help from others and makes life-changing decisions to survive.
